Sarah looks at a blank canvas and the art painted upon it is determined by her mood. Her range of capabilities
not only impresses the mind but also rouses emotions.
Although she is gifted in all mediums and tells you she prefers soft
pastels, give her a paint brush with any other medium and she will
relinquish a finish product worthy of favouritism. She’ll employ
brushes, knives, and other tools to add excitement and texture. She’ll
blend with her fingers and rags to soothe and collect thoughts. Final
details are never forgotten.
Sarah has painted since she was a young girl and although much of
her art comes naturally to her, she is mindful of the areas of her art
which need work and direction. Whether she is painting a personal
piece, a gift for family and friends, a commissioned piece or a mural,
her delight in the final product is equal to the joy of the client.
Sarah has been teaching children ages 6 and up, and interested
adults since 2002. Her joy in seeing growth and development in her
students is almost as rewarding as completing a piece herself.
